Branches of Engineering

Engineering offers tremendous scope for employment depending upon the area of specialization. There are numerous opportunities for engineers in the private sector, public sector, defense services, in Civil Aviation Industry, Merchant Navy and computer software industry, etc. Engineers with Post Graduate degree get senior position in private and government department or as a planner or advisor on basic infrastructure development of the industry. An engineer with entrepreneurship abilities can also set up his/her own enterprise. Professionals in this field are in great demand today and the demand keeps on burgeoning day by day.

Lean More!

More than 25 branches of Engineering are available and these branches can be grouped as given below based on their curriculum and their field of application. The branches within the category are very similar and vary slightly based on their specialization. The Engineers in each category have a basic knowledge and training that can be applied to the specific fields of engineering. Different categories of Engineering are as follows

Computer Science Engineering (CSE)

Computer Science Engineering (CSE) encompasses a variety of topics that relates to computation, like analysis of algorithms, programming languages, program design, software, and computer hardware.

Information Technology(IT)

Information technology (IT) is the technology required for information processing. In particular the use of electronic computers and computer software to convert, store, protect, process, transmit and retrieve information from anywhere, anytime.

Electronics & Communication Engineering (ECE)

Electronics & Communication Engineering deals with the electronic devices, circuits, communication equipments like transmitter, receiver, integrated circuits (IC).

Electrical & Electronics Engineering(EEE)

Electrical & Electronics Engineering (EEE), deals with the engineering problems, opportunities and needs of electrical, electronics, computer, telecommunication systems and related industries.

Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering( E&I / I&C)

Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering (E&I), Instrumentation & Controls Engineering (ICE), are the two Engineering courses which are derivative of the Instrumentation Engineering.

Civil Engineering(CIVIL)

Civil Engineers plan, design, and supervise the construction of facilities essential to modern life like space satellites,tunnels, highways, transit systems, dams, airports, harbors, water supply system and wastewater treatment plants.

Mechanical Engineering(MECH)

Mechanical engineering, the broadest of all Engineering disciplines. It deals with design and production of tools, machines and all other mechanical equipment used in any industry.

Manufacturing / Production Engineering

Manufacturing or Production Engineering is the subset / specialization of a Mechanical Engineering. Mechanical Engineering with the focus only on Machine Tools, Materials Science, Tribology, and Quality Control is known as Manufacturing Engineering.

Mechatronics Engineering

Mechatronics Engineering involves the design and application of intelligent, computer-controlled electromechanical systems. Mechatronics Engineering often leads to products and processes with significantly enhanced function and performance.

Aeronautical Engineering

Aeronautical Engineering is the science involved with the study, design, and manufacture of flight-capable machines, or the techniques of operating aircraft.

Automobile Engineering

Automobile engineering incorporates elements of mechanical, electrical, electronic, software and safety engineering as applied to the design, manufacture and operation of automobiles.

Industrial Engineering

Industrial engineering is the branch of engineering that concerns the development, improvement, implementation and evaluation of integrated systems of people, knowledge, equipment, energy, material and process.

Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineering deals with the design and maintenance of chemical plants and the development of chemical processes for converting raw materials or chemicals into valuable forms.

Bio Technology

Biotechnology means any technological application that uses biological systems or living organisms to make or modify products or processes for specific use.

Bio-Medical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering (BME) can be defined as the study and application of engineering principles and techniques to the medical field.
